[Answering to my own posting]

Hi,

a simple 'git pull' executed today solved the problem...

I am sorry for any inconvenience I may have caused you.

Sincerely,

Dietrich

Hi,

I would like to compile ECL on Windows 7 running on my MacBookPro using the Visual Studio Command Prompt (2010) but no ecl.exe is built.

The source code is from the git repository.

Just before giving up, the following error message is printed:

> Debugger received error of type: UNBOUND-VARIABLE
The variable *MODULE-SYMBOLS* is unbound.

Some more context of the output produced by nmake is appended to this email.

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks, Dietrich
